They're finalists in the today show "Best in show Competition."

She was rescued 10-years ago from a puppy mill.

Dixie is the adviser for her dad’s company, Bow Tie Strategies, and is in charge of the theme of their annual Christmas card!

“What the Today Show really liked was our annual Christmas card that we’ve been doing for 7 years now,” Foster said. “We have different themes, costumes and at a different location ever year.”

The winner was announced live Wednesday morning on the Today Show. Dixie came in 4th place in the online fan poll with 14% of the vote.
